About Susan Cavell

Scott and Susan Cavell own this lovely cottage on Walloon Lake. Scott's Grandparents purchased the property in 1934 and we will be celebrating 83 years of Cavell's owning this home. Scott spent many summers in his youth visiting his Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles and cousins while growing up. We are now able to enjoy our 5 grandchildren spending summers on Walloon Lake. Life is good!

The property has 2 homes, our cottage which we rent and our cabin which is down on the waterfront. We spend summers on the Lake and winter in Harbor Springs, where Scott runs 2 companies and Susan is a Financial Advisor in town.

Why Susan Cavell chose Northern Michigan

The cottage has had many updates recently. All new bedding and sheets from Pottery Barn, 2 king size beds and a queen which is nice for couples. Brand new kitchen!

The west arm of Walloon is beautiful! Sandy bottom, clear blue water. Great location for kids to swim and enjoy the lake.

We treasure our time on the lake and know other families would be able to create their own memories for their families.

What makes this house unique

We have 4 bedrooms which is nice for a family to share space. Lot's of room to move around and there is a full kitchen for family meals.

We are surrounded by woods and the sounds of summer living on the lake. It has it's own rhythm, spending time on the lake makes you slow things down and enjoy the beauty around you.
